Dear asm

What are you doing with this useless, worthless piece of copper? Just give it to me and forget that you ever had it!  >:D
Just kidding. The mint is Chitor. I still don't have  one of these  :(.

Well, you had left me with no choice :o. A one man army could not afford to loose an entire collection to your army of "two-metre tall super-soldiers" which you had threatened to unleash on Asmgarh .... Will seek revenge some day...........Beware..... >:D

Brilliant reconstruction of the legend. However in the mint-name Chitor, the te and waw should be connected. As it is written now, there is an Alif after the te.
